“Teen Titans” Animated Series Debuts On Boomerang’s “Boomeraction” In February 2009

Press Release:

Teen Titans to Get Hero’s Welcome on Boomerang

Beloved Cartoon Network program premieres Monday, Feb. 2 at 10:30 p.m. (ET)

Fighting for truth, justice and the last slice of pizza, the D.C. Comics Teen Titans are five super heroes who are living proof that you’re never too young to save the planet. The animated series debuts in its new home Monday-Friday on the commercial-free Boomerang network starting Monday, Feb. 2 at 10:30 p.m. (ET) as part of the “Boomeraction” block which includes Justice League Unlimited at 11 p.m. (ET) and The Batman at 11:30 p.m. (ET). Teen Titans originally launched on Cartoon Network in 2003 to great viewer acclaim, making it an instant classic for younger generations and a favorite for comic book fans of all ages.

Based on the long-running DC Comics series, Teen Titans features five teenage superheroes who each exhibit special powers. The team is led by Robin, the acrobatic and daring group leader with a stocked utility belt and no fear. Beast Boy, small in stature and quick with a joke, can shift into the form of any animal, from a tiger to a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Starfire is new to Earth and nave to its ways, but when it is time for a throw-down, she fights as hard as any of the others. The spooky, deadpan Raven can control inanimate objects with her powerful mental abilities. Hulking Cyborg is half-man, half-machine and the most powerful member of the team.

But Teen Titans is not all about superpowers and bad guys. Like most teens, they love hanging out with their friends, playing video games and going to parties. Like most adolescents, they are trying to find their place in the world and deal with their growing pains as well as they can.

“Now is a great time for young people to see they can accomplish anything,” said Stacy Isenhower, senior vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network. “Teen Titans is a perfect fit for Boomerang as the show depicts young people accepting responsibility for their futures and the well-being of others.”

Teen Titans will air weeknights beginning with the very first episode. The first week of programming features the following episodes:

* Monday, Feb. 2: “Divide and Conquer” – Cinderblock busts into prison — and the Teen Titans show up to stop a jailbreak.

* Tuesday, Feb. 3: “Sisters” – When a mysterious alien probe shows up to haul Starfire away, sweet-natured Star has no idea why it came.

* Wednesday, Feb. 4: “Final Exam” – Before Slade will hire the new Hive Agents, he requires that they pass one ‘final exam’ — they must destroy the Teen Titans.

* Thursday, Feb. 5: “Forces of Nature” – Dark ominous clouds blow in from the East, bringing thunder and lightning with them: two forces of nature made flesh in the form of costumed super-teens.

* Friday, Feb. 6: “The Sum of His Parts” – Cyborg’s power cell is dying. And while the problem is easily fixed with a new battery, Cy is reminded of something he doesn’t like to think about: he’s not completely human.
